    Right now I would bet alongside you Shawn. With 4.5k being enough for 4k resolved, that means that 5k has some extra room to spare. And if 5:1 is the gold standard with virtually no compromise, then 7:1 definitely sounds like a good place to be. It will come down to each running their own tests of course, but it won't be far from 7:1, and perhaps even a tad lower.

    It is so nice and such a relief to know that this beast of a camera comes armed with REDCODE.

    Now that compression is measured in ratio, which is great, does anyone know what Redcode 36 represents?

    Would like to get a benchmark compared to what I know.

    Because of differences in spare area / addressable space on different sized SSDs I doubt the recording times will be EXACTLY 50% and 200% of the published 128 numbers.

    I also bet there's additional metadata related to the co-mingling of the two streams that makes HDRx files a touch more than EXACTLY double the size (half the recording time) of non-HDRx.

    I would still think these charts would be close enough to be useful though, just nerding out on you a bit

    Hense the big bold word saying "Approximate" at the top of the charts. ;)

    If I'm not mistaken, RC28 is approx 10:1, therefore RC36 is around 7.7:1

    I thought 7:1 was RC42?

    FYI I recorded 8GB worth of footage including some timelapse stuff on one of my 64GB SSD's and it offloaded via FW800 from the REDMAG in 90 seconds. That is HUGE (16 GB CF cards were taking me about 6 1/2 minutes using a Rocketfish USB reader).

    I was also able to playback directly from the SSD attached via the FW800 and open in RC-X, and was able to sustain RT playback at 1/4 resolution with no issue.

    Thanks for that Jeremy.
    That was gonna be my next question.
    Does anyone else have SSD offload times using R3D DM?

    Thanks

    FYI we recorded 5K 2:1 aspect at 8:1 compression on 128 GB SSD and had 40 minutes of record time.

    When we shot HDRx it was cut in half...really awesome feature -we literally could not have shot what we did without it given our small light package.
